Betrayal, a critically acclaimed play written in 1978 by Nobel prize recipient, Harold Pinter, won an Olivier award in 1979 for Best New Play in the West End. Pre-pandemic, the play enjoyed a successful revival, receiving multiple awards for both the West End and Broadway productions in 2019 and 2020.

The play features Pinter's characteristically economical dialogue, the characters' hidden emotions and veiled motivations, their self-absorbed competitive one-upmanship, face-saving, dishonesty, and (self-)deceptions!

The play integrates different permutations of betrayal relating to a seven-year affair involving a married couple, Emma (Marlisa Doubell) and Robert (Matt Newman), and Robert's "close friend" Jerry (Pierre Malherbe). For five years Jerry and Emma carry on their affair without Robert's knowledge, until Emma, without telling Jerry she has done so, admits her infidelity to her husband, Robert.

Directing this classic play is Fleur du Cap: Lifetime Achievement Award-winning director, Chris Weare.

This is only the third time since the 1980's that the rights have been granted by the Harold Pinter estate, exclusively for production in Cape Town.

Please Note: No late comers will be allowed entrance into the venue.

PG 12
